Antonio Brown Shares Alleged Text Message Conversation With Buccaneers Head Coach Before Jets Game

Antonio Brown has been making headlines since Sunday’s Bucaneers and Jets game. As we previously reported, Brown removed his jersey and exited the field mid-game without explanation, but he recently revealed he was asked to play despite being injured.

In a lengthy statement, Antonio said he felt pressured to play in Sunday’s game after he made head coach Bruce Arians aware of his injured ankle. Shortly after, Coach Arians denied knowing about the injury, and Antonio came through with some receipts.

In a tweet and series of Instagram posts, Antonio shared a text message exchange, seemingly between him and Coach Arians, where he explained that he rolled his ankle and was unsure about playing.

“I’m all in coach. Really can’t get to full speed I wanna win wanna be there,” Antonio said as he sent a photo of his ankle during a physical therapy session. “If I wake up tomorrow and feel better, I’ll be ready. Kinda rolled it outside on 2pt play. I want what’s best for team lmk when you free I’ll call you.”

The responding message stated, “Come see me in the morning. We’ll talk it out. Definitely want you with us in care you’re ready.”

In his statement, Antonio explained that his decision to walk off the field was not a random moment of “acting out,” but a reaction to his pain being dismissed by his coach.

“I didn’t quit. I was cut. I didn’t walk away from my brothers. I was thrown out,” he said. “First they cut me. Now they cage me. Instead of asking how I felt to getting to the bottom of it, the team texted my camp promoting a totally false narrative that I randomly acted out without any explanation.”
